Chicago activists had some harsh words for President Obama in a video response to his State of the Union address.

"If this is what you call helping us, just stop helping us," said Mark Carter, an activist with Voices of the Ex-Offender, who suggested Obama should resign, because he isn't doing any good.

"We might as well have just had a cup of cocoa after he got through, because we didn't get nothing out of this, but another real fuzzy, warm, beautiful statement, and everybody that was the powers that be get up and eat and we all go home hungry again," said Paul McKinley, who unsuccessfully ran as the GOP nominee to replace disgraced Democratic Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. in the 2013 special election.

The video was put together by the conservative blog Rebel Pundit. See it above.
